Science of Manuscripts Workshop (in partnership with the Cleveland Museum of Natural History)

Class Type: 
Program type: 
Saturday, April 13, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

While today most books are machine-made, 15th-century texts such as the Caporali Missal were made by hand. These service books and other manuscripts were lavishly decorated with colors that maintain their ability to dazzle. From the natural pigments used to create the paint to the application of gold and silver leaf, explore the geology behind these artworks. Practice using natural pigments to create paint and your own works of art. Workshop registration includes parking.

Please register by April 6 by contacting the CMA Ticket Center at 216-421-7350. Workshop registration includes parking and supplies. Cost: $35 for TRC Advantage and CMNH Science Resource Center members, $40 for non-members.
